During his 16-year tenure on the Coldspring executive team, Flint worked closely under the leadership of previous President and Chief Operations Officer, John Mattke.

Listening to customers’ needs and then utilizing change management to improve Coldspring’s LEAN management system are Flint’s areas of special expertise. His deep knowledge and understanding of the business, connections with the employees and members of the stone industry, along with his strategic background and focus, position him well for leading the entire Coldspring organization going forward.

John Mattke will move to Marble Falls, Texas, where he will provide guidance as President of the new Coldspring subsidiary, Stone Panels International, during the next phase of its transition. Flint and Mattke will work closely in the coming months to ensure a smooth transition. Mattke will also provide ongoing guidance and support to Flint and the Coldspring executive team in key areas as he assumes a new role as a member of the Coldspring board of directors.
